How can a non-resident in the USA set up payment methods on Shopify?

1 0 0

If it isn't necessary to establish an online business as a non-resident in the USA for a Shopify account, how can I set up Shopify Payments or PayPal Payments within Shopify? Additionally, do I need a PayPal business account, or is a personal one sufficient?

Hi @Armin_S,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with this request, to ensure it gets resolved. To confirm I'm fully understanding, are you looking to determine whether or not you can use Shopify Payments as a non-resident of the United states?


If so, do you currently have physical operations (i.e an office) within the United States? 


If not, I encourage you to check out this complete list of all available third-party payment providers in your country and/or region. Shopify has integrated with over 100 different third-party payment providers, including PayPal, to allow you to continue accepting credit cards online.


To learn more about this, you can check our Third-Party Payment Providers documentation as it touches on this further. For additional details on Shopify Payments and what countries are currently supported, you can check out this page.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
